THE LEAD STORY - THE 'FORGETTABLE' SYNAGOGUE MASSACRE SUSPECT: The man accused of storming a Pittsburgh synagogue and killing 11 worshippers during an anti-Semitic rampage was described by neighbors as a loner who listened to talk radio, chain-smoked and was so bland in person that he bordered on being “forgettable" ... “I really wish there was some type of clue,” Chris Hall, who lives next door to accused killer Robert Bowers, told Fox News. Hall said Bowers “felt more comfortable expressing his views online rather than in person. If I were to wave to him and he said, ‘All Jews must die’ or there was an SS sticker on his car, I would have f---ing reported him... but he didn’t do any of those things.”
Bowers allegedly opened fire with an AR-15 rifle during worship services inside the Tree of Life Synagogue on Saturday, killing eight men and three women before a tactical police team tracked him down and shot him. Six other people were injured in the attack, including four police officers. Among the dead were a grandfather, a husband and wife and two brothers. The victims ranged in age from 54 to 97. Bowers faces 11 counts of criminal homicide, six counts of aggravated assault and 13 counts of ethnic intimidation in addition to federal counts that include weapons offenses and hate crime charges. Prosecutors say they intend to seek the death penalty.
